Re: RIP Neil peart

What I admired most about Neil Peart was his class and dedication. In every interview I've watched you can see what a classy, decent human being he was. And to play at his level, giving it 100% at...

Re: New Project! Big Fat 70s Luddys

I agree with the wood filler and wood glue suggestions.
As far as sound, the 3-ply, 24-in kicks are some of the best sounding kicks I've heard- fat and boomy. I typically prefer the sound and...

Re: Removing rust stains from white interior of vintage Ludwig

I'd try a cloth dabbed with some vinegar or with CLR if that didn't work. Something acidic should work.
I'd test an area that was hidden to make sure that paint wouldn't be removed.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I agree with this. Based on my experience, part-time musicians can be flakey and might not look at playing as anything but a hobby, so having a leader is a must in order to achieve goals and keep...

Re: Help! Is this a Ludwig Coliseum?

I saw that drum. It looks nice and is at a good price too. Definitely looks like a coliseum.

Re: Question regarding 26 bass drum

This might be one of those situations where worth is whatever the buyer is willing to pay because 3-ply, 26-in kicks with clear interior kicks are rare. Having one in a that wrap is probably more...

Re: Ludwig B/O COW kit pricing help needed.

$700-$800 is fair to me. If they were power toms the price would be lower.

Re: What's up with head prices going through the roof?

I might buy heads once every couple of years, so it isn't a big deal to me.
I hate buying Chinese made anything for many reasons. US made goods are typically better anyway, based on my experience.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I like how Gretsch pays tribute to their heritage with their drums, much like DW and Ludwig do. For what it's worth, I asked some guys who work at Forks what brand do they sell the most of and two...

Re: WTB: Red Sparkle Drum Wrap

I'm sure you're aware from seeing other 18-in drums, but it requires 2 pieces of wrap. The good thing about Precision is that they will cut it so that the seams are lined up with your lugs. Jammin...

Re: Delmar & Precision Question

I'm not sure who makes the oyster wraps. I thought those were made by an Italian company.
You may be right that they make some of their wraps in-house though.
I remember that they placed a...

Re: Delmar & Precision Question

As far as I know, their sparkle and glitter wraps are made by Delmar.

Re: Vintage Wrap, New Kit

Nice. You should try a Keystone 24-in kick. The Keystones are very underrated drums.

Re: Paiste 602 Value

The hats are nice and I've heard good things about the Renowns. They're an import kit with a used price of $700-$800. Those Club dates sell new for about $1700.

Re: Ludwig Club Date

Be careful, the site nanny will you send you a message about keeping it vintage, or at least she sent one to me.

Hi

That's a nice outfit, I really like the Turquoise finish.
I'm certain,...

Re: Restored Drum Value

In my opinion it lessens the value. It becomes a players kit and that's ok, I just wouldn't expect to recoup the money spent on re-cutting the bearing edges. If edges are bad enough to need...

Re: Will My Toms Fit On This Stand?

I'm not much help, but if the rods are too big you can buy the 9.5 mm L-rods separately. For instance:

Re: Least HOF Worthy Bands/Artists

Yes, any band/artist who didn't play rock shouldn't be in the hall of fame.

Re: Another Offer

The 12-in CM tom appears to have micro classic lugs, which were used on Centennial kits, but I could be mistaken due to the angle. Classic Maples would have large or small classic lugs.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

I'm guilty of being greedy too. I've made low-ball offers on drums, (although with respect), and I've purchased drums at below market prices, but I'm not too bothered by it.

Perhaps we're talking about the difference between hobbyist and dealer pricing. My belief is that professional sellers typically price their goods in order to stay in business. If they can't make...

Sellers with high prices bring out more sellers and products to the market.
